Sometime hilarious, sometimes merely amusing, this book is divided into chapters covering different aspects of the game or different events, although the groupings seem to be arbitrary.I like the piece where Fanny Sunesson can t quite get her pronunciation right and says bristols instead of bristles but I think she won the exchange with Nick Faldo that followed I also found it amusing though absolutely right that John Daly put his sponsors needs ahead of President Clinton s following his win at St Andrews There is also the story of a golfer who sent a shot into the rough Wearing spikes hadn t ensured the accuracy of the shot The golfer went to where the ball was and accidentally trod on a baby rabbit hiding in the undergrowth The rabbit protested strongly those spikes were painful, but the rabbit recovered.You definitely need to have an interest in golf to enjoy this book, but it s the kind of book that you can dip in and out of whenever you have a spare moment. I bought this book for the captain of the local golf club and he took it in and the members had hours of fun reading this book
